Gwyneth Paltrow’s true diet details: Coke and Cheetos!

Gwyneth Paltrow has changed her tune about that strict diet her family follows. In the latest Goop newsletter, the actress and cookbook author admits there’s not only Oreos in their life, but Coke and Cheetos, too!

Gwyneth Paltrow is either starting to tell the whole story about her family’s diet, or is trying to do some damage control. Nearly two weeks after headlines ran crazy quoting the actress explaining her children have a “hunger” on their low carb, gluten-free plan, tales of junk food indulgences have emerged.

“I tried to start them off with all of the right foods, but as they got older, the lure of Oreos and cotton candy outweighed the lure of carrots with hummus,”the blonde with laughable high-end taste wrote in Goop’s latest newsletter.

“And that’s all a part of childhood and I love Oreos, too, so I completely understand. I try to make sure that what is on their plate at home is nutritious and tasty, and then I loosen way up on the reigns (sic) when we are out.”

Elaborating on what 8-year-old Apple and 6-year-old Moses, the star’s children with husband Chris Martin, actually eat, Paltrow continued, “They love a brown rice stir-fry, but they also love their ‘Coke of the week’.”

“My daughter gravitates toward fresh fruit and raw nuts, but will inhale a bag of Hot Cheetos at the airport,” she added. “It’s all about balance.”

The 40-year-old, who hasn’t quite completely ruled out having another child just yet, went on to advise, “My food comes from me and so it is true to me. I just know what I want to eat. And if I want something, or my family wants something, and it’s on the restricted food or allergy list, I love to find my way around the obstacle. I’m all about finding my way around an obstacle.”
